Neighbouring central Prague, today Vinohrady shines as a graceful and leafy residential area replete with elegant dining opportunities and charming shops. The name Vinohrady means "vineyards".As far back as the 14th century, at the behest of Czech king Charles IV, the area was indeed covered by vineyards.
Many of its grand Neo-Renaissance, Art Nouveau, Pseudo Baroque, and Neo-Gothic buildings date from the prosperous mid to late 19th century and early 20th century, and many have been and continue to be restored in an uncommon array of colour and architectural detail.
Of particular note is the Church of the Most Sacred Heart of our Lord (Kostel Nejsvetejšího Srdce Páne) on Jirího z Podebrad Square. This eccentric modernist church is truly unique, and the nearby farmers’ market that visits the square on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, serves as a reminder that you’re in a prime and cultivated residential neighbourhood.
A pleasant 20 minute walk along charming Vinohradska street will take you directly to Wenceslas square. Alternatively, the route is well served by trams and the metro.
These apartments are located 1 minute walk from the tram stop “Vinohradska Vodarna” and 4 minutes walk from metro station “Jiriho z Podebrad” which is on the “green” line A – the direct line to the Old town or airport. By metro it will take you only 3 minutes (2 stops) to reach Wenceslas square or 6 minutes (4 stops) to reach the Old town square. The apartments’ location allows easy access to Prague’s extensive and cost-effective public-transport system.
Most of the streets in front and around the building offer free parking. It is the closest zone to the center where free parking is available. A map of streets with free parking will be provided to guests. Underground secured parking is available at the Korunni Dvur garage which is 5 minutes walk from the apartment. Price is 400 CZK/ 15 EUR for 24 hrs. Reservations upon prior request.
Close to Prague’s centre, Žižkov derives its name from the Hussite general Jan Žižka, whose impressive statue sits proudly on his horse on the top Vítkov hill. His statue is located near the massive National Monument, which contains a Czech history museum.
Military buffs would enjoy the nearby tank-fronted Czech army museum.
Prior to 1922, Žižkov was an independent city.
A celebrated oasis within Zizkov is the Reigrovy Sady park that invites a casual stroll, a gratifying jog or an indulgent pint of fresh Gambrinus beer in the large and highly popular outdoor "pub". The park’s location on a hill affords beautiful views of the Prague Castle. Children will likely enjoy the playground near the beer garden.
Žižkov has taken on an alternative, eclectic personality in recent times, perhaps most markedly represented by Žižkov TV Tower - standing some 216 metres high, it’s a distinctive structure visible from nearly everywhere in the city. The faceless babies crawling up and down the tower were added in 2000 by Czech pop artist David Cerný, because apparently the Žižkov Tower wasn’t strange-looking enough as it was. The tower contains an observation deck and restaurant, and a mini golf course was recently installed in the surrounding park.
A picturesque 15 minute walk will lead you to Wenceslas Square. Alternatively, the locale is well served by trams and the metro.
